Our garden (the flowers)

ImageLast summer we got married in our backyard.  It was the wedding of my dreams and our yard has never looked better.  One of my bridesmaids is an amazing gardener, so she helped us make it beautiful.  This summer, I’ve been more focused on the vegetable garden (which I had to forgo last year in the interest of space), but there are still some lovely plants and flowers left over.


The yard is a nice mixture of flowers, fruit plants (a peach tree, blueberry bushes, a raspberry bush), a small vegetable garden, and plenty of grass for playing (and mowing).  The front yard has a couple rock gardens (which I love).  I’ve been focusing more on some of the flowers in the past couple weeks.  Here are some of my favorite pictures of them:

Yes, I do love lilies.

  4. Beautiful! I have a black thumb and I live in an arid climate. So I pretty much kill everything.

    Ahhh the zinnias, how I love them. Such a sturdy flower in any garden. You have some pretty special plants in there. And how special that you got married in your own backyard!

I'd love to hear what you think!
